IMG_0111.JPGIt's all about getting out there and having fun my local club has 3.5 - 5 - 7-1/4 so you all sorts of locomotives turn up.
Please let me know where your local track is located, I am interested in building a 3.5” gauge locomotive next.

Thanks!

Re: Brass strapping material

I found some thick brass, surplus door kick panels and cut them into strips on my bandsaw.

Here’s a link to a video discussing them: https://youtu.be/cvEAuYiQZjU
